SUN VALLEY – There is new reaction from a Valley neighborhood that got a very unexpected visit from a bear.

The Maricopa County Game and Fish Department and Maricopa County sheriff's deputies had to tranquilize a 2-year old male black bear after it wandered into the Sun Lakes community Wednesday.

A man and his wife found the bear sprawled out underneath an orange tree in their backyard. The bear has since been re-located to a much cooler environment.
